    The rainy season is upon us and for us Southern Californians, it is getting cold!

    It is important to make sure your pets are warm and dry during the winter. Keep them safe, warm and happy with these tips:

    • Pets should have a comfortable and clean, dry shelter to stay in especially if your pet spends the majority of its time outdoors.
    • Check to make sure your shelter for your pet does not have any leaks and that falling rain cannot splash inside of the dry shelter.  It is important to place it in an area where water does not accumulate.  Bottom line: keep your pet high and dry!
    • Continuous rain will usually decrease the frequency of your important walks with your dog. In order to compensate for less outdoor time, play with your pet more indoors either chasing a ball or playing tug of war just to get your pet the exercise he’s used to.
    • Pets should always have access to adequate shelter and under no circumstance should you leave your pet tied up in the rain.
    • Should there be an emergency you must have an escape or evacuation plan mapped out for your pets.  Prepare a first-aid kit for your pets in case they become wounded and never abandon them during a disaster.
